Cross Country Challenge
On Wednesday 16 November, the Year 8 Cross Country team travelled to Harrow to compete in the Secondary schools cross country challenge.
There were over 10 different schools that entered the competition and over 80 other runners within their age group.
This was the first time many of them had competed in a cross country competition. When they started, they were all full of energy and sped off ahead.
Alicia set the pace from the start and was leading straight away. The others students were all running at a good pace and found their place within the other competitors.
It was an excellent performance from Alicia, who won the race by a very long way. Lia was the next to finish from St Mary’s, coming in 5th place. Charlotte H and Charlotte S were not far behind.
The Year 8 students had a great race and did St Mary’s School proud with their achievements.
